Wherein Our Heroes partake in the Euro 2016 matches at The Ship & Anchor Pub and chat relentlessly with the masses present to watch the Round of 16. Supporters from France, Ireland, Germany, and Slovakia weigh in on the action on the pitch. We also chat with the lads from Calgary's own Foot Soldiers as they prepare for our PDL match against Kitsap Pumas.

Wherein Our Heroes offer a proliferation of wonders concerning UEFA’s quadrennial showcase. Was Puma’s yarn really defective, or was this a ploy to get the French in the book? Does L'Équipe need to back off in their criticism of Les Bleus? Joachim Löw blames “adrenaline and concentration” on a double scratch ’n sniff, we are definitely not having the violence that has marred the group stage, and Croatia’s midfield shows it can keep pace with Spain’s best. Also, we’ll be at The Ship & Anchor Pub on June 26 – don’t miss it!

Wherein Our Heroes and Brendan once again convene to complete their Euro 2016 preview for all of Gafferdom. Groups D and E are rife with intrigue while Group F seems to be the dud of the bunch. Will Spain sizzle like chorizo in a hot pan or will their form cool like a fresh gazpacho? We waffle on whether Belgium can secure top spot in Group E, or if the Italians can defy their role as non-favourites. Will Iceland live up to expectations as the darlings of the tournament? Also, Marouane Fellaini adopts a Valderrama look, and we dig.

Wherein Our Heroes are joined by Brendan, Wielder of The Whistle of Never-Ending Substitutions, to discuss prognostications and predictions for Groups A, B, and C. We think France could be magnifique in front of their home supporters, wonder if Wayne Rooney will spell doom for England’s attacking three, and feel Thomas Müller is a candidate for das Golden Boot. The new tournament format is titillating, Wales may surprise, and the Swiss likely won’t miss. Also, Mario Gómez and his slick locks may just prove decisive for Germany.

Wherein Our Heroes recount the glorious experience that is a Calgary Foothills FC home opener, shout-out to some fellow Canadian football lovers and podcasters, and delve into a bottomless pit of segments. Jérôme Boateng can be our neighbour any day, 7-year-old Ewen makes a bid for the vacant Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager job, and Jose Mourinho takes the helm at Manchester United. We’re in agreement that defense and underperforming starlets are the cause of Chelsea’s downfall and feel sorry for Juanfran after a pulsating Champions League Final. Also, the party’s over for Jamie Vardy’s lookalike.
